I ran into a BSOD 0x71 Session5_Initialization_Failed error after transferring a hard drive from Dell DCNE to another desktop Acer Veriton T661.

It also shows check disk then the BSOD 0x71. When I try the safe mode, the last driver showing would be mup.sys before it does an automatic restart.

The motherboard on the Dell desktop died hence I need to transfer the hard drive, this is for the client with limited budget.

Running the following will NOT fix the above BSOD as it already passed the MBR.

  • chkdsk /r
  • fixmbr
  • fixboot c:

The only solution that works for me is to copy a backup registry hive from C:\Windows\Repair\ folder.

Asrock motherboard keeps showing the 'Asrock Instant Flash' with "No BIOS file found."

To fix that:

  1. Go to Asrock website and download the latest BIOS file of your motherboard.
  2. Unzip the BIOS file and save the file to a USB stick.
  3. Boot the computer then the 'Asrock Instant Flash' will show.
  4. Select the USB Device from the right hand menu, then let it search for the BIOS file. Once found, press Enter to flash the BIOS, then wait to finish.
  5. IMPORTANT: Shutdown the computer, unplug the power cable and let it seat for 10 minutes.
  6. Switch the computer and that should be it.
